Norwegian prime minister Jens Stoltenberg has been using an iPad to manage the situation in his home country as he is currently stuck in New York, due to the volcanic cloud from an Icelandic volcano that has grounded many flights into and out of Europe. “There are good means of communication, I have close contacts with my office all the times, and there are a lot of activities in Norway where we try to reduce the consequences of the volcano in Norway,” Stoltenberg told CNN. “It’s very normal for a PM to travel abroad so this is not different from the other travels, it’s just lasts some days more than expected. We have the internet, the mobile phone. I also use an iPad, which is excellent.” [Photo via Flickr]

As the CNN article says: “Running a Nation? There’s an App for that.” Apple should buy the rights to the story in order to use it for an iPad ad.
